power outage. >> reporter: the ravens shut it down against my beloved 49ers. destiny's child, the advertisers and the fierce beyonce. good morning to you. welcome to "early start". i >> it was a long, long night. >> i didn't watch the whole thing. >> every last bit. >> i just wanted to get the half-time show. >> that was something. >> that was great too. >> this is what happened when a football game meets the twilight zone. first, the football. ravens nearly blowing a 22-point lead. they were this close to blowing it. somehow they held off the san francisco 49ers who had four shots to win it at the end of the game. the final score was 34-31.
2:03 am
that was the football side of it. you could say the whole thing was overshadowed. the lights went out. a 34-minute power outage put the whole super bowl on hold. carlos diaz was at the game. he is back in new orleans where the power is back o. what on earth went on? that was one of the most bizarre things we have seen. >> we went from blowout, blackout to shoot-out in just a matter of a few minutes in new orleans. it's a situation where everything post 9/11 happens in a major city like superdome you have to start asking questions. there was no terrorism involved. nothing that way. the crowd never got to be in a panicked state when half of the power went out. when the company that supplies the energy to the superdome said basically it was a power surge.
2:04 am
the system thought there was an abnormality and shut down. equivalent of at your house a power breaker goes off. a breaker broke. and the half of the energy in the stadium goes off. half the power goes off. here's the thing, for those of you watching at home you had no explanation because the power went out on the side of the announcers, jim nance and phil simms for cbs. you could not hear them because the power was out on their side of the stadium as well. so fans were in the dark inside the stadium and all over the world because there was no explanation. what happened was there was a surge -- there was no fire as originally reported. and the players resumed after 34 minutes on of a power outage. >> 34 long minutes. it felt like it was a decisive moment in the game. walk us through some of the other highlights. >> yeah. you know, it was all ravens
2:05 am
before the power outage. you just know the conspiracy theories were gearing up saying the nfl is trying to stave us off of winning the super bowl. it was 28-6 when the power went out. it was all ravens before the power outage. after the power outage, the san francisco 49ers basically made a surge of their own and got back into the game. the game came down to four plays inside the 10 yard line. when it's a second year like collin kaepernick going against one of the best defenses in the league you knew the ravens were going to come out on top. ravens get the win, 34-31 and john harbaugh beats his brother jim. >> i don't know if i agree. i thought there was every reason the 49ers would put it in.
2:06 am
they had all the momentum on their side. somehow the ravens stopped them. great to see you this morning. i'm sure a long night for you too. >> thank you. >> a little blurry-eyed this morning. there's lots of debate this morning about the biggest hit when it comes to all those super pricey super bowl commercials. advertisers spent up to $4 million for one 30-second spot. one of the most memorable for better or worse was this >> their two sides of godaddy. the sexy side and the smart side that creates a killer website represented by walter. together they're perfect. >> it's the sound. it was the sound effects that did it for me. >> ew! i could not get into that one.

2:08 am
killed and dozens injured when a tour bus struck a pickup truck and rolled over on a treacherous highway in california. this happened in san bernardino, 80 miles south of los angeles. the road is so narrow that rescue workers have had a very difficult time reaching all the victims there. what is the very latest here? >> well, this is what chp is telling us now. there are eight people confirmed dead. but they say they believe that number is going to change. meaning they will find out many more people died in this crash. also, we've had our own count here. about 27 people have been taken to five local hospitals. six are critical. some of those are children. my photographer and i walked up to the crash site about a half mile from here. it is absolutely stunning to see
2:09 am
what happened here. it looks as if this tour bus flipped over at one point. much of it is caved in right above where the driver would sit. we understand people were ejected from the bus. in this crash scene you can clearly tell there are numerous tarps that are concealing bodies and also body parts. that's what's making it so difficult for investigators to try to determine just how many people were killed in this accident. i talked to one first responder off camera. she said it was one of the worst scenes -- probably the worst scene she had seen in 25 years. here's what the chp has to say on camera about this accident. >> it's a terrible scene, horrific scene. there's multiple victims. there's personal belongings, personal property at the scene. >> also, the chp says there was
2:10 am
a ford pickup truck involved and it was carrying a trailer, a work trailer and a saturn sedan. it may be that the bus hit the saturn sedan from behind. while we were up there you can clearly tell that the road was sloped. but this is a pretty straight stretch. it goes to big bear, which is a winter recreation area. it is believed this is from national city from the san diego area and was carrying people from the tijuana area. it would seem logical they were coming back down the hill after enjoying a day in the snow. somewhere along the way this accident happened. >> thank you. investigators in texas are still trying to determine why a 25-year-old iraq war vet allegedly killed former navy s.e.a.l. sniper chris kyle and another man at a gun range in texas over weekend.

2:12 am
house. he told her what happened. she called police. and ralph was eventually caught. ralph is an iraq war veteran. he left the marines in 2010. kyle, who wrote the best-selling auto biography "american sniper" talked about the duty to those he served with in an interview with kttv last year. >> my only regret are the ones i couldn't save. he started a foundation to help those suffering from ptsd. that may be why kyle and littlefield went to the gun range with ralph. >> mr. kyle works with people suffering from some issues that have been in the military. and this shooter is possibly one of those people that he had taken out to the range to mentor, to visit with, to help him. >> kyle's friend travis cox said that's just the kind of man he
2:13 am
was. >> the man he was when he came home is a servient leader. he was a humble, humble man. he had a vision to support veterans and their needs. and he was fearless in that. and he gave his life doing so. >> the dallas "morning news" reports that jailers used a taser on ralph when he became aggressive with guards. the newspaper also reports he's on suicide watch. it's still not clear this morning why the shooting occurred, john. >> the first place a learned of chris kyle's death was in a tweet from sarah palin. he was very well known. and you actually met him. >> i did. i met him in iowa in 2011. he was with sarah palin there. i talked to him a little bit about the s.e.a.l.s. he was very proud of his

3:06 am
from 28-6 to 31-29. a two-point conversion failed and that's what the ravens needed. a field goal late in the game and then with the niners within the ten-yard line, and first down. the ravens defense stopped the niners on four plays. kept them out of end zone. controversial call on the fourth play. it looks like michael crabtree was grabbed. the referee said no. jim harbaugh said it was definitely a holding and pass interference. ravens pull it out. joe flacco, game nvp. and up for a new carat. he says he's a raven for life. ray lewis ending his 17-year career, with the baltimore ravens going out on top. winning the super bowl after announcing at the beginning of january this would be his final run as a raven and retiring at

what the heck was up with the lights?

what caused the power outage at the super bowl. and we find out today if the remains of a king were found in a parking lot. king richard iii ruled 1,500 years ago. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. >> and i'm john berman. super bowl xlvii memorable for a lot of reasons. the 49ers came up 5 yards short of the biggest comeback in super bowl history. down 22 points and then the bizarre 34-minute delay when the lights went out. they just went out inside the superdome. the ravens on the verge of a blowout before the blackout and it seemed to throw the ravens for a loop. it distracted supercalifragilisticexpialidocio bowl commercials. cnn's carlos diaz was at the
3:33 am
game. hey carlos. >> how you doing? basically, cbs missed a gold mine. could are vun commercials for the entire 34--minute delay. what happened last night was intercom, the power company that supplies power to the superdome was an ab normality, a power surge through a breaker and that's why power went out in half the dome. they are still investigating the cause, but if we're being honest about this, it really wasn't that big of a deal inside the superdome. fans didn't throw them off their game it allowed them to refill beers and take a restroom break after beyonce's halftime show. wasn't too much alarm inside the stadium and people watching at home, although confused really took that 34-minute break as a chance to get refreshed. it was a situation where mvp joe
3:34 am
flacco, the quarterback for the ravens, says the blackout will be talked about for years to come. >> unbelievable. just one of the things you have to deal with. i'm sure down the road if will make for a better story. >> reporter: so basically you have that bizarre blackout. but it did affect the game in a small way, because the san francisco 49ers did make a come back after that, and the momentum did shift. but not enough for the ravens to lose the game if they lost the game, people would be screaming conspiracy theory in baltimore this morning. but the ravens came out on top. joe flacco, your game mvp. >> a huge momentum shift to me. i would have been screaming conspiracy. >> let's talk about ray lewis, certainly goes out on top. how does this affect his legacy? >> he didn't have this amazing
3:35 am
game, but he was the center of attention for the super bowl, announcing before the super bowl he would be retiring. there is controversy around ray lewis. he was involved in a murder 15 years ago. that has basically haunted him for 13 years. did a lot in the nfl to revamp his image and come out on top of this, after the game, he said it was a storybook ending. >> all right, carlos, great to see you. thank you for braving new orleans for us. surviving the game and all the festivities. >> thank you. 34 minutes past the hour. hard to wrap your head around the death of chris kyle. the most lethal sniper in u.s. history, shot and killed far away from the battlefield at a gun range south of ft. worth, texas. his alleged killer, said to be one of the fellow veterans kyle
3:36 am
was trying to help adjust to civilian life. eddie routh is charged of killing kyle and another man on saturday. motive is unknown. kyle is a former navy s.e.a.l. who served four combat tours in iraq. 160 confirmed kills. after retiring, he wrote a best-selling memoir called "american sniper." he counciled other veterans and described frustration with the treatment of the veterans on "inside the team room" this is last year. >> instead of just going to the airport and saying thank you and shaking a hand, take a step farther, why don't you go up, and random act of kindness, show your thanks. you don't have to spend a dime, just your time. >> we have the producer of the series, and you might recognize him from mad tv or one of his many other tfrp v and movie
3:37 am
credits. thank you for being with us. how did you meet chris? and what went through your mind when you found out he had been killed? >> i met chris in april of last year. brandon webb, the creator and editor of wanted to do a roundtable series with navy s.e.a.l.s and bring in chris and he needed help. he needed a moderator and technical help and so he invited me to be part of it, and i was very proud to. so it was during that day, a four-hour long conversation that i got to know chris. we spent the rest of that evening together as well. hanging out. but i asked him some pretty probing questions, and he answered very can at this time -- candidly, which is what brandon was looking for. it was quite an experience. >> he was very committed to
3:38 am
service men and women and the system failing them. what can you tell us about that? >> well, you know, when he was in iraq, a lot of the work he did was called overwatch, as a sniper, he had the high ground, and he had a whole view of the battlefield so he could protect the marines, who were moving below. and i -- i feel like a guardian is a good way to describe chris. he was a guardian of the marines, when he was deployed. and when he came home, he remained a guardian. he was very concerned about the way that veterans and service members were portrayed in the media. he felt like they needed a fair shake, he understood the fog of war and the ambiguities of combat, and he wanted to make sure not only that we gave them the benefit of the doubt, but we
3:39 am
gave them the proper support when they came home. he was very concerned that service members felt discarded when they returned home, and he wanted to facilitate -- help facilitate their transition from war to productive civilian life. and he knew first hand just how difficult that transition could be. >> i want to play a moment of that. a moment in your interview when chris talked about robert bales, accused of killing 16 afghan civilians in march of 2012, american soldier. he urged do not rush to judgment. let's watch it. >> don't be judging our boys over there unless you walked a mile in their shoes and you know what happened to them a week before, an hour before. what put him in that mind-set? did we fail him, or did he fail us? >> right. >> is that something he shared with you? >> yes. and i think it's very poignant,
3:40 am
given the circumstances, that this was a -- a former marine, that he had decided to help. he was picking up the slack where somebody else had dropped the ball in terms of helping this person transition from a wartime mentality to a civilian mentality. and, yeah, i think a lot of people have already rushed to judgment. i think the question did we fail him or did he fail us, is an important question. chris would want that asked any time. >> that's interesting. >> a veteran or service member is accused of doing something terrible. we put people in a situation where they have to see or experience really horrible things and it's very difficult to know what part that had in their behavior. and i think too that christen coura
3:41 am
-- chris encouraged that we represent the depth of sacrifice going into combat represents and we give help at the other end of the agreement when they come out of the service. >> you are keeping his memory alive. i would imagine that's precisely what he would be saying right now. one final question for you, and that is, did you know if he struggled himself with adjusting back to civilian life? >> you know, i read his book before the interview and all i learned about chris and his combat stress was about the book. when we sat down in the interview, i wanted to get to that. in the book, he mentioned he felt electrical buzzing feelings in his body, he was having trouble sleeping, he stayed home a lot, did a lot of drinking, and when i asked him about those things in the interview, he --
3:42 am
he didn't answer. he didn't seem reticent about answering, but changed the subject quickly to combat stress in general, and what we should be doing to help our veterans. so i -- i don't know if he was shy about it. from what i understand, he's not shy at all about talking about it with other veterans. maybe because i'm a civilian that he didn't want to share. >> all right. pat kilbane, appreciate you joining us. host of sofrep's inside the team room with u.s. navy s.e.a.l.s. >> you're welcome. 600 years later, now may actually be the winter of our discontent. scientists think they found king richard buried in a parking lot. stay with us. >> clever, berman.
